    Cleaning tools- brushes, nets, etc

    Hi all! I've got everything I need for my new pool except for the cleaning tools. What will I need to maintain a 12x24 SWG pool?

    At a minimum, you'll need 1 telescopic pole, 1 plastic bristled pool brush and 1 skimmer net or leaf rake. I never use my skimmer net, always my leaf rake, even for skimming the pool. Some people prefer to have a skimmer net though. A manual vacuum head can be helpful to have around as well, but I rarely use mine as I have a robot that does a pretty good job.

    Most importantly... do you have pool toys?

    Thank you! Lol, yes we do have some pool toys but I definitely see more in our future Would amazon be the best place to get these things? I had some for our old intex pool a few years ago, and they were very flimsy...
